Question about 1985 Chevrolet Chevy

1 Answer

1992 Pace Arrow Motor Home 454 Chevy...not getting fuel to start

Replaced the power steering pump and now the fuel injected carb isn't getting gas to start the engine, if you put gas in the carb it will start and run forever. Fuel pump is working, fuel filter is new and there is pressure/gas getting to carb but won't start unless you put gas directly in the carb. Figuring the power steering replacement is unrelated but??? Did have to disconnect the oil sending unit to get to power steering pump, but is has been connected and seems to be working correctly. Checked all fuses also...Any ideas????

    It will continue to run on its own and you can see the fuel feeding into the throttle body. We will check the plugs to the distributor and I will mention the Noid lights to my brother who is working on it. Thank you

    Power steering problems were due to using automatic transmission fluid rather than power steering fluid.

    Starting problems were due to a blown fuse labeled for the electric window on the drivers indication that it had anything to do with the throttle body or fuel injection but it did.

After you dump the fuel in the throttle body it will continue to run on its own or die as soon as it burns up all the fuel you dump in? Do you have access to (Noid lights)? Are both plugs attached to the distributor?

    Also check the fuel pressure. It might be low. Low pressure could make it not start but run O.K when the alternator raises the voltage to the fuel pump.

1984 S10 wont run fuel coming out at pump but doesnt seem to supply carb. has new filer. when primed it runs for a few seconds.

Is this a carbed engine, that usually means mechanical fuel pump? Take fuel line loose from carb, aim into container, crank engine, does gas flow? If so, have to check float bowl in carb to see if any gas, if no gas, need a carb kit in my opinion.
I don't know liter size of engine? If fuel injected, let us know.

Its possible if you have a carb instead of fuel injection.
The engine would stall and have to sit for a while to cool off before restarting. The carb would in effect run out of gas.

I have a 1980 chevy cheyenne c30 454 dually. It has duel tanks. Carb is not getting fuel... Changed the fuel pump, still nada. Both tanks have gas, and engine starts when I pour gas in carb. Are there also...

I would check all the switching fuel valves. One might have gotten stuck shut or isn't working properly. Replace them as necessary. I would also check that the fuel lines aren't clogged or blocked.
